do you know exactly what you’re allergic to? is it possible you’re allergic to something else – you can develop allergies as you get older.

It’s entirely possible that your laundry detergent is causing your issues. My Future Sister-In-Law had an issue where her entire eye area was red and angry looking. The cause ended up being that she was using those Purex 3 in 1 laundry sheets and the resdue that was left on her face clothes was iritating the skin. Once she got rid of that stuff and started using the “free and clear” stuff it all went away. 

 

Feel better!

I get similar symptoms and Zaditor eye drops help a lot.  You can buy it at the drugstore so you don’t need to wait to see the doctor.

You said you already tried new makeup / periods of no makeup, so this MIGHT not help, but I’ll share my recent experience anyway just in case!

I started having VERY similar symptoms..specifically annoyingly itchy lash line. I wear contacts daily. I too tried no contacts, no makeup, etc. and it would help…for a few hours maybe. What finally helped me was (1) discontinuing use of all “exciting” eye / near eye makeup…i.e. tossed my volumizing mascara and super fancy undereye concealer and went back to using all basic clinique products ANd (2) went to the eye doctor and was given a prescription for some eye drops that really helped reduce the inflammation in my eye.

I honestly think one of the products was mildly irritating my eye, and simply discontinuing it for a short period of time was not enough. Is your new makeup pretty basic or does it still have fragrance / dramatic/ volume / etc somewhere on the package?

Hope you find a solution..I know first hand how annoying / painful / just all around icky that feeling is. 🙁

I also have allergy related eye issues, and when they flare up, my goodness, it looks like I got punched in the face. I’ve been using Visine-A Eye Allergy Relief drops, and they’re working pretty well. I also changed mascaras and that seemed to help a lot. Good luck!

@Isilme: I’m not sure but if nothing else ends up helping it might be worth a shot at some point. I know it would be frustrating to mess up your skincare routine and have it not work though!

During my issues a couple people in my family told me they took about a month to develop a reaction to new products so it is definitely possible…
